Know where the TFRs are so you don't fly through one...

1) ForeFlight

ForeFlight allows you to overlay TFR information on their mobile app, as well as their website. Simply go on to the map and make sure that TFRs are selected as one of the layers in the upper-left-hand corner.


2) FAA's TFR Map

The FAA's TFR Map allows you to locate TFRs in the vicinity of your planned route of flight. By selecting the center controlling agency or the state you plan to fly in, you can focus on specific TFRs. Scroll down and the site will display a list of TFRs in the area with their dimension, description, and when the TFR is active.


3) Leidos

There are two ways you can learn about the TFRs located on your route of flight through Leidos: a weather briefing, and their interactive map.

To get a weather briefing through their services, you need to create an account. Navigate to "Plan & Brief" at the top, fill out all the required information, and generate the weather briefing. Near the end of the briefing, there will be a discussion about NOTAMs. Look under FDC NOTAMs to find information about TFRs along your route of flight.

The second way, while not as comprehensive as a full weather briefing, is a nice way to visually see where TFRs are located. When on the interactive map, make sure that TFRs are selected in the upper-right-hand corner. Click on the depicted TFRs to learn more information about them!
